We are sorry to say that owing to staff absences, we have taken the difficult decision to suspend the fortnightly garden waste collection service, to enable our bin collection crews to focus on the core waste and recycling services, where there is currently a backlog of collections from the Christmas and new year period.

Collections will not take place from Monday 10 January.

We understand that this suspension will be frustrating for some of our customers, particularly those wanting to have their real Christmas tree collected. They will be collected when the service resumes or can be taken to one of the 22 recycling site listed above
